BREACH UPDATE: Staples admits to customers data being lost

Staples Inc. has come out with the following statement today.

The number of cards affected 1.16 million.

Staples Inc. (SPLS), the largest U.S. office-supply retailer, said 1.16 million payment cards may have been affected in a series of data breaches that occurred from July into September.
The theft occurred after criminals deployed malware on point-of-sale systems at 115 of Staples’ 1,400 U.S. stores, the Framingham, Massachusetts-based company said today in a statement. The company disclosed in October that it was investigating a potential breach.
